I'm in the process of learning the harmonica part for a song for Halloween and I'm struggling a bit with song key and harp key. I could use some help if anyone is willing to listen and chime in. Here's the link to the YouTube video.

that was a dam good vid of bruce. he has some serious command of his tone and chops. not quite lester butler but he did the song serious justice.

i might have tried 3rd pos with a C harp just for giggles, in fact i will once i can crank up here later today. maybe even a baritone C chromatic!

the red devils did some other really heavy intense harp-led blues rock with lester butler up front. that guy really opened my eyes/ears to new possibilities about 12 years ago.

The song has that "minor" sound to it... try a Bb in 5th position just for the fun of it...
